The Peugeot 5008 is the overall winner at the Diesel Car Magazine Awards 2010. Ian Robertson, Editor of Diesel Car magazine said 'We have seen a lot of talented contenders this year, despite the turmoil the motor industry has faced. I am really pleased to announce Peugeot taking the top spot with the spectacular 5008 winning Diesel Car - Car of the Year 2010. '

The Peugeot 5008 is based on the Citroen Grand C4 Picasso, it has the same clever seating system that allows the middle row of seats to fold flat and the rear two to be hidden under the floor. The interior of the Peugeot 5008 has smart materials, neat chrome touches and a sweeping tall centre console leading to deeply cowled dials. Six airbags are standard and there are lots of active safety features including grip control which is an upgraded traction control with five modes giving the driver more say over the grip levels of the front wheels. There is also electronic stability control and dynamic roll control (2.0 HDi and 1.6 THP only).

The entry level Peugeot 5008 includes air conditioning, powered windows, CD player and a leather steering wheel. The Sports version adds 17in alloys, automatic electric parking brake with hill assist and rear parking sensors and the Exclusive comes with a head up display, distance alert, panoramic glass roof and dual zone climate control. The Peugeot 5008 is a smart looking people car that is genuinely well built with competitive pricing, generous equipment levels and a good all-round driving experience, wrapped up in a package that seats seven what more could a family buyer want from a car!
